An introduction to Romanticism, this course pays particular attention to the ways that Romantic writing uses sentiment, sensibility, nature, and history to imagine an organic national community. The course readings and discussion focus on the relationship between nature and nations, land and language, and people and places as we study poetry and novels. The course will begin by defining key terms in Romanticism, and then study romantic nationalism in England, Ireland, and Scotland.
